Jacob Steiner Family
Jacob Steiner (1734-1801), a miller, was one of the men who came to Wachovia in 1755, and in 1766 was one of those selected to begin construction of the town of Salem. He married Catharina Beroth (1742-1810) in 1771, and settled in a house near the mill. The Moravian records describe the tragic death of their young son Jacob, who fell into the mill-race and drowned.
